Hello, I am recovering from open heart surgery and due to being unable to return to work and some complications from my surgery, I have fallen behind in my bills, which include daily living expenses such as rent, food and utilities, as well as other bills.
I was born with a heart valve defect. As I grew into young adulthood, my heart problem required medication to keep my symptoms of heart valve disease under control.
As the years went along my heart condition required more frequent monitoring, medication, and periodic testing such as stress tests, ekg and echocardiogram tests.
Eventually, after a series of tests and consultations, my cardiologist referred me to a cardiac surgeon for further consultation and it was determined that it was time for me to have valve repair surgery.
The surgery was a success. I have had some complications here and there along the way during the recovery period.
Having open heart surgery is no joke. The recovery from it is difficult and very painful and it’s a long road back to excellent health.
As a result of having open heart surgery and subsequent complications, I have been unable to return to work and have therefore fallen behind financially.
I usually don’t like having to ask for help, especially money. However, my current situation leaves me no choice but to do so. Family and friends have helped as much as they can. I have gone to social services organizations and charities and have received limited help.
Still I am in great financial need, with medical bills left over from the surgery, rent, food , utilities, doctor visit co-pays, medicine, and other bills, it’s more than I can handle. I don’t have the resources to take care if all of this.
I am hoping that there are some kind-hearted people out there that will find it in their heart to help me.
I know there are a lot of scammers out there, especially on the internet. That makes it hard for people who need legitimate help to find it. I understand that. However, there are people who truly have legitimate needs. I am one of those people. My need for financial assistance is legitimate. I really did have open heart surgery (I have the scar to prove it) and I am in desperate need of financial help.
I will attach a few pictures showing me in the hospital, directly after surgery in the Cardiac ICU, and later sitting up in my room in the Cardiac ICU.
I am hoping someone will have kindness and compassion in their heart to help me. All donations will be greatly appreciated.
